We were able to take pictures from the museum patio. Would recommend for any history buff. The train ride around the mountain was okay. Most of the shops were closed. I would recommend the glass blower exhibit.

Charge less for parking and I would be happier! The actual carving is a work of are depicting the heros of the civil war. The laser show is fun if you have the time and of course more money.

Stone Mountain is amazingly. Their is fun for all ages, a water play area, the barn is awesome with lots of soft balls for play and nets to climb. There is a hiking type area, sky lift to the top of the mountain and of course the Laser Light show with fireworks. Don't sell yourself short, go check it out.

Stone Mt is a money pit for visitors. Costs $15 just to drive in - we thought this would cover admissions, but basically it's a very expensive parking fee. The lady did tell us that nearly everything was closed due to the rain and specifically mentioned that the tram was closed. Went to a Museum? near the main gift shop... More

Spent less to see Rushmore. Museum accessed only with purchase of sky ride ticket. Take binoculars if you do go.

The whole park had an amusement park feel, complete with high-priced food and souvenirs, but it had some fun activities, and beautiful landscape, and the adventure pass was a great deal.

This carving is a beautiful tribute to the Confederate Leaders. We saw it from the park area in front of carving. That is best area for a picture . Saw it also more close up from sky ride too.

On a trip down to Florida, we stopped here to break up the drive and stretch our legs. Very interesting, but if you are looking for amusement park excitement, this isn't it. Prices are a little steep, but I assume upkeep is not cheap. It is well maintained and clean. Bathrooms could use some updating.

The carving is historical, beautiful and very interesting, but I found very little else intriguing. We took the tram ride, but there wasn't much to see on top. Families seemed to be having fun at the snow park and that looked fun, but if you are looking for historically significant sites in Georgia, this was a bit disappointing to me.

Visit the park during the day for the history and scenery, don't wait for the light show. The light show was probably neat 20 years ago, but it looks sloppy compared with modern technology. In addition to the weird cartoons, there is no story, just loud music, a few references to important people and places in Georgia, a tiny bit... More
